I’m working on two new items for the site and I’m rather excited to share them with you.
The first I actually finished last night. It’s an Amazon shop filled with my favorite things. Most of the items are tools for stimulating creative play (would you expect anything less from me) but there’s also a few things I think every modern family could use.
I had a lot of fun putting this together, it was like shopping without having to spend any money. My goal is to add more items and categories as our family continues to discover what work for us. You’ll find a permanent link to the shop in my toolbar at the top of the page (“shop MPMK’s favorite things“). I’d love it if you’d check it out to let me know what you think. And if there’s a must-have item you think should be added to the shop, please let me know that too!
The second item is still a work in progress. A few weeks ago Mel of Last Minute Mel sent me an email asking how in the world it came to be that a site that features so many other blogs doesn’t have a “featured on” button. Actually, she was much nicer than that. She very politely inquired as to whether or not I had said button and sweetly pointed out that it might drive additional traffic to my site if I did (although I’m sure she had to be thinking, “what is wrong with you woman?!”).
I’ve taken Mel’s brilliant advice to heart and am working on it. The problem is that my logo is pretty wide and I’m having trouble making it fit into a reasonably sized button. So my questions to you are:
1) Is the prototype button above legible?
2) Is that size (180 pixels wide) a size that would work for most blogs?
Thanks so much for your input and also for your continued sweet words and votes here. I truly couldn’t do any of this without you and you guys make it all so worth while!
